Six pilot whales die in Canada stranding

Six pilot whales died on Tuesday after their pod stranded on the rocky coast near Judique on Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia, Canada.

A total of 16 whales stranded originally but rescues efforts by locals helped to successfully refloat 10 whales when the tide came in. The coastline is now being monitored in case any of the whales restrand. 

Meanwhile, on Thursday another pod of 14 whales were rescued after stranded off Bayfield near Antigonish, Nova Scotia. It is not thought these were the same whales involved in the earlier incident.

Pilot whales are one of the most common species to be involved in stranding events.
